The Kentucky Transportation Center was requested by Bhate Engineering Corporation and A.B. Shopping Center Properties, Inc. to evaluate and monitor apparent movement in the Keystone Block retaining structure and the earth embankment located next to the Walmart Department Store at Mist Lake Plaza in Lexington, Kentucky. In June 1997, a report (KTC-97-11) was submitted which summarized work that had been conducted prior to June of 1997. The initial report included results of the inspection of the surface drainage, inspection of subsurface storm water drainage, inspection of the embankment, and inspection and photo-logging of visible wall distress. In June 1997, several monitoring points were established on the face of the wall and the parking area behind the wall. This report discusses the results of this monitoring.
